Ludwig Joseph von Welden
He was ordained a priest in 1750 . At the end of 1768 he was elected Bishop of Freising, after Clemens Wenzeslaus von Sachsen resigned himself in 1768 after being appointed Archbishop and Elector of Trier. Ludwig Joseph von Welden received the episcopal ordination on September 10, 1769 from Auxiliary Bishop Ernest Johann Nepomuk von Herberstein , who later became Bishop of Linz . As the 59th Bishop of Freising, the Enlightenment inclined von Welden took care of the education of the population in particular. He tried in vain to prevent the establishment of the Munich nunciature as a "court nunciature " for the Electoral Palatinate Bavaria in 1785 . In 1786, together with the German archbishops, he passed the Emser punctuation , which demanded the approval of papal bulls by the bishops. He died on March 15, 1788 in Freising.
